Indoor Swimming Pool

June 10th, 2017 · 3 Comments

One of our readers commented on yesterday’s dirty swimming pool post and said he’d like an indoor pool if he bought a house in Phoenix. Well, Felix, your wish has been granted! Here’s a home with an indoor pool! You weren’t specific enough about the size and condition and quality and installation.

The sellers should have cleared off the counter and sink in the kitchen before selling.

170610b

And cleared off the stove.

170610c

And cleared off the floor. Good grief.

170610d

This room could use some attention too. Perhaps by the person standing on the left with the Nike sneakers.

170610e

Hey, lazy bones, get up and help the lady clear out everything on the patio.

No Smoking

June 8th, 2017 · 3 Comments

Let’s take a tour of this Phoenix home. Lots to see.

170608a

Lots of dust. Why are the curtains stained?

170608b

We step back from the dining room into the family room. After noticing the ceiling damage, remember the red vacuum handle, the blue folded rug, the aluminum pan (right side middle), and the plastic chairs. They will help orient you as we move about the house.

170608c

We step back again and shift to the left. Lots of dust. That stereo and yellow telephone are old.

170608d

Then we pivot to the left and see ceiling damage.

170608e

Crack in the corner of the room.

170608f

We step back again. There’s the wall crack. And now we see the aluminum pan.

170608g

And when we look down, there’s the folded rug.

170608h

Aluminum pan again plus ceiling damage.

170608i

Now let’s visit the kitchen.

170608j

Original cabinets. House built in the 1950s, likely.

170608k

Help wanted!

170608l

Old flooring.

170608m

Here’s a bedroom.

170608n

We turn to the right.

170608p

And to the right again.

170608q

Another bedroom.

170608r

And now a visit to the living room. With more ceiling damage.

170608s

We look to the right.

170608t

And to the right again, showing the stained wall.

170608u

We finish with two photos of major ceiling damage.

170608v

Total rehab needed.

Three Messy Living Rooms

May 20th, 2017 · 4 Comments

Messy living room. Good grief.

170520a

Help me understand. These homes are for sale. Are the sellers that clueless?

170520b

From a house in Florence, Arizona. The state prison in Florence is cleaner than this house.

Too Much of a Good Thing Is Not Wonderful

March 27th, 2017 · 5 Comments

Multiple items. Multiple patterns.

170327a

Overly decorated living room.

170327b

Assault on the senses.

170327c

Visual distractions.

170327d

If buyers could see past the stuff and notice the high ceilings and nice flooring.

170327e

Too much furniture for a small space.

170327f

Giant bed.

170327g

Too much going on.

170327h

Themed bathroom. Looks very small.

170327i

Again, too much furniture for a small space.

170327j

Less is more. Hint hint.
